Cantabile was founded in 2001 and chose its name in recognition of the great influence of the Western Art tradition in women’s choral music.
The purpose of Cantabile is to advance the understanding and appreciation of women's choral music through learning and performing a repetoire of women's choral literature across musical periods.
The 2016-17Singers: The Cantabile Women (a.k.a. "CantabiLadies") are auditioned singers, selected for their vocal quality, range, and blend.
